Summer Holidays..............

Good Afternoon Ladies

July classes are here at last, although I am officially still on my break!!! Cards all done though, so I thought I may as well get them out there......
Summer holidays the theme, with caravans, deckchairs, parasols, sun-hats, flip-flops and lemonade!!!!
Bright colours all round and shaped cards to finish them off.
Blue, pink, green, turquoise and yellow papers.

 The new papers are from Simple Stories, double-sided papers.

First sneak peek is a new stamp from Woodware.

A little bit of threading on the base of this card to match the parasol.

Summer holidays the theme, so I had to put it on the card!

I enjoyed making these cards with the bright papers and a little bit of colouring in too.
Hope you do to.

Happy Easter....

Good Afternoon ladies and a Happy Easter to you all.

Made a few Easter cards using a wooden bunny as centre piece and the MME papers.
I have put a few more Easter cards onto my pinterest board if you would like to take a look.

A few weeks ago I mentioned to a few of the ladies, that I had seen on YouTube how to straighten your 'B' plates for the Cuttlebug., so today I had a go.
I have taken a picture of the plate, at it's worst, but I forgot to take it at an angle to show how bent it was!!!

You can see a bit of a curve. I scrubbed the plate with a scrubbing brush, using Cif, to get all the bits of paper and colouring out of it.I then put the plate in a bowl and poured on boiling water, pushed the plate down in the middle with a spoon, or other utensil so you don't burn yourself. Leave a few minuits,then........

Hey presto! the plate is flat again. Pity it isn't clear but at least it goes through the Cuttlebug better, without the thought of it cracking.
Have a go, your plate will last longer....

Bye for now.

P.S. If you do need any new 'B' plates I now sell them.
